ACUHO-I Internship Program

Members include thousands of campus housing professionals who work at more than 1,000 campuses as well as more than 250 companies and organizations whose products and services support the profession’s needs.

The ACUHO-I Housing Internship Program is one of the most prestigious and competitive internship opportunities available in student affairs. The program provides students invaluable real-world work experience that can be applied to their current coursework. At the same time, institutions that host interns benefit from an infusion of new staff who assist with training, conference management, special projects, program development, and more.

Each year, ACUHO-I member organizations from around the world post positions spanning a variety of roles within student affairs, including residence life, facilities, conference services, family housing, housing assignments, and food service. For more information, please visit the ACUHO-I Housing Internship Program website.

Rutgers University-New Brunswick recruits two ACUHO-I summer interns, one intern to serve in Residence Education: Living-Learning Communities and one for Residence Life Assignments. National recruitment is coordinated through the ACUHO-I Housing Internship Program. Interns provide a valuable contribution to our staff through their project work, their interactions with our staff and students, and through their insights and perspectives.

Successful candidates should possess professional passion for working in student affairs and be willing to contribute fresh ideas to our growing residential program. We welcome candidates who are energetic, adventuresome, committed, and open to new perspectives.

Living-Learning Community Peer Mentors

Peer mentors are motivated and committed undergraduate students who wish to make a positive and significant impact on the lives of Rutgers students. Our current peer mentors say that the peer mentor experience has provided a hands-on opportunity to demonstrate the ability to build community, act as a campus resource, make connections with faculty and staff, and positively contribute to the success of their peers. Whether it is assisting a student in identifying clubs that meet their needs, giving personal advice, keeping them company while watching a movie, or outlining the do’s and don’ts of Expos, our peer mentors act as a vital component of our Living-Learning Program.

The peer mentor application for our International Community is still open: Learn more about the Peer Mentor position!
